This course focuses on more detailed design issues and further hands-on examples of system analysis/modeling. Students will be better able to perform system design and analysis thus saving their companies time and money in optimizing system designs. This course will enable you to analyze any system technology and configuration to see if it will meet the required SIL (Safety Integrity Level) and determine if existing systems are safe enough, if they need to be upgraded, and whether proposed systems will meet the performance requirements. You will also be able to determine the optimum manual test interval for any system, saving your company time and money by not over- or under-testing systems. Certificate Program: This course is required for the ISA84 Safety Instrumented Systems Certificate Program 3. You can register for the course only or for the certificate program which includes course and exam. ISA Course Safety Instrumented Systems-Design, Analysis, and Justification (EC50) or Safety Instrumented Systems: Design, Analysis, and Justification (EC50E) and ISA Certificate Safety Instrumented Systems Certificate Program 1 are prerequisites for Certificate Program 3. Those who successfully complete this course and pass the certificate program exam receive the designation of ISA84 SIL Verification Specialist.
What you will cover
System Modeling/Analysis Hands-On Advanced Examples: Multiple Examples with Different Field Device Technologies | Configurations | Diagnostic Levels | Test Intervals | Common Cause Factors | Imperfect Manual Testing Detailed Design Topics: Fault Tolerance | Safe Failure Fraction | Diagnostic Coverage | Confidence Limits | System Response to Faults | Using Devices for Control and Safety | Non-Fail-Safe Design Requirements | Interface Requirements
What will be able to
Develop and implement different SIL selection techniques within your organization, including the risk matrix, risk graph, and LOPA (Layer of Protection Analysis), in order to determine the appropriate level of performance needed of your safety systems. This will prevent you from over or under designing the system requirements and will save your organization time and money.
